Here in this tutorial we will show you how to troubleshoot redirecting issue in your WordPress website.
Let me tell you that if you are facing any kind of redirection issue in your WordPress site then it is probably because of some wrong redirection rule placed inside your hosting account. With the help of this article, you will learn how to troubleshoot redirect issues in your WordPress website.
Login to your WordPress admin panel
Once logged in, navigate to Adjustment page and click General Settings.
When on the General Settings page, you will see that there is a list of settings and available options. Double-check and make sure that the addresses of both WordPress and the site match.
If there is a mismatch between the two URLs (for example the WordPress address has been set to http://mydomain.com/, but the site URL points to http://www.mydomain.com/), you need to make sure that both web addresses are the same.
